Top options for customizing a bathroom

(BPT) – As you probably remember, choosing your home was strongly influenced by the layout and appearance of its bathrooms. But no matter how long you’ve lived in your home, there are bound to be improvements you’d love to make. And almost everyone needs options for optimizing bathroom space.

Staging a House for Sale: 10 Steps to Home Staging Success by Designer/Realtor Maxwell Alexander

In a strictly rational world, buying a home would be largely an economic decision. Homebuyers would weigh the properties carefully, comparing factors like appreciation potential, relative value, and quality of life. But in the real world, the home buying experience is quite different. In the real world, home buyers shop with their eyes, and with their hearts, and that makes home staging an essential part of the sales process.
